Record Store Day 2022 at Down In The Valley

Record Store Day 2022 at Down In The Valley

Record Store Day is upon us once again and it's extra special this year because it's the 15th Anniversary of Record Store Day and our 50th Anniversary in business! All 3 locations will be participating this year and we open at 9am.

This year's list is once again amazing so if you haven't checked it out, you can do so here: https://recordstoreday.com/SpecialReleases
If you are new to Record Store Day, you should brush up on what this event is and what to expect over at www.recordstoreday.com. All of the special titles are limited and exclusive to RSD retailers like us. These titles cannot be pre-ordered, held, purchased, or guaranteed in any way in advance. They are sold on a first-come basis and you should expect a line at the door and which varies at all 3 of our locations. We have many customers who've made new friends just from standing in the RSD line at our stores and now they are like family, attending the event. It's a great way to meet fellow music lovers like yourself.

We run our RSD lines in an orderly fashion going back to the original RSD 15 years ago. This is organized and not at all a free-for-all situation. We do have a limited number of picks the first time through the line but you can re-enter as many times as you want. Note---we will only sell you one copy of any title, no doubles. We do this so everyone can have the opportunity to get the title they are searching for this year. Our VIP MEMBERS get to choose 8 different titles the first time through the line. Non-VIP's can choose 6. **note this number varies per location (6 vip/4 non-vip at CR) (Hint, hint.....now would be a good time to join the membership as memberships need to be active before the event and there's a discount) Again, we do this system so everyone has a shot at getting the albums they want. Also, we bring in a ton of stock each year so think of us first, regardless of the line. The most heard thing in our stores at RSD is "I wish i would've visited your store first." We usually still have many of the great titles into the afternoon and into Sunday and Monday before we put up online

**Taylor Swift fans---- This is a special note to mention that there will be some disappointed fans out there as they only pressed 10,000 copies of her RSD 7". Folks, there are 1400 RSD stores so you can see by the math, no store will have a lot of these. We are still contemplating how to make this fair and get this piece into the fans, not the flippers. We will announce our plan for this specific title on our socials and an update to this post early next week.**

his year we are proud to partner with our friends at Broken Clock Brewing who have brewed up another special beer for the event called "Liquid Fidelity." There will be samples poured at each location so make sure to give it a taste if you are of age. There will also be restaurants nearby each location with Liquid Fidelity on tap.

So...who's coming to see us this year? Let us know what titles you are searching for this year. Titles and quantities vary per location, fyi. If you have any questions, hit us up on messenger and we will answer them the best we can.

Hope to see you all on April 23rd for Record Store Day!
p.s. On Friday April 22nd we will be hosting a Record Store Day Pre-Party event at @newbohemiagoldenvalley from 8pm-10pm. We will be tapping the keg of Liquid Fidelity with @brokenclock as well as giving away sweet prizes including vinyl, DITV gear, and more. Down In The Valley employees will be DJ'ing the event and maybe we'll spin some RSD classics too. Also, we are raising money for pets for @AHSGoldenValley! Anyone that donates during the event will be entered to win a $250 gift card from Down In The Valley. Join us for the party the night before the big party and have some fun!
